In the absence of an electricity connection many turn to traditional fuel based lighting, namely kerosene, which is the most abundant and available source for those in these countries.
However, there are many dangers of using such lighting method.
THE PROBLEM WITH KEROSENE:
The sun is an infinite source of power and it only takes one five thousandth of the sun to power the world
Solar products provide a cost-effective way of harnessing the sun’s power for rural households without access to electricity
Enlighten- Replacing kerosene lamps with solar lanterns in rural households and enabling school children to study for longer in a clean and safe environment
Empower- Replacing kerosene lamps with solar lanterns in fishing and farming villages to increase the working hours of agricultural and fishery workers and reduce their expenditure on kerosene
Light4Light- Opportunity for the Sri Lankan Diaspora to send their friends/family in Sri Lanka a practical gift in the form of a solar lantern. iEnergy then uses the majority of the profits to donate free solar lanterns to households currently living without access to electricity
